It took the Edmonton Oilers just three minutes and fifty-five seconds to score their third goal of the game in their New Year’s Eve eve game against the Seattle Kraken. In a highly contested Pacific Division and Western Conference, the Oilers were off to as good a start as they possibly could have gotten.
However, the Oilers kept adding more to the scoreboard anyway. Huge performances came from multiple players, led by a one-goal, four-assist night from Connor McDavid and a four-assist night from Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Three other Oilers had multiple points, and Stuart Skinner saved 36 of 38 shots. All of this powered the Oilers right past the Kraken as they jumped up the Pacific Division standings.
